Return of a Newbie....to airguns.

My last experience with CO2 guns made me think you get 10-20 "good" shot off
with a Co2 fired gun (using 12g cyclinders). Then it is down hill from

Also something safe to shoot in the basement/garage that is quiet.

Any thoughts? After some research I found this brand to be reliable and very
modestly priced.
